WACO (June 12, 2012)—Baylor professor Marshall Magnusen says he was on his way home for lunch, when he saw a driver in front of him toss what looked like trash out of a car window, but then, to his horror, he realized it was a kitten.
He stopped, picked up the kitten and rushed it to a local veterinarian.
One of the kitten’s legs must be amputated because of injuries from the impact and the animal also tested positive for a light case of feline leukemia.
The veterinarian says if the kitten recovers, it can still live a good life despite losing one leg, but it will need foster care from a family without other cats that could be exposed to the feline leukemia virus.
Magnusen already has three other rescued cats at home so he can't take the kitten in that he saved, but he's hoping someone else will be able to.
